Big City Lights

Average White Band

Hey - (look at) those big city lights
They won't shine tonight for me
It's raining - I'm walking the streets
My heart is way down - down in my shoes
Talking, talking to myself,
There's nobody else who can hear me

Your love put me on the corner
When I came back and found you were gone
Tonight I feel the city won't
let me come home

Hey - (look at) those big city lights
They used to be so friendly to me
I came to New York to make it our home
Now you've gone and left me here - here on my own
East side, West side - who's on my side
If I could find where you are I might know

Laughing and drinking
with bad weather friends
Makes me forget for a while
But every time I drain my glass
all I can see is your smile

Hey - (look at) those big city lights
Buildings closing in on me
Hey - (look at) those big city lights
Only make it harder to see

I can't believe you really left me
All this time you said I was your man,
But I'm gonna find you,
and I know that I can,
know that I can

Hey -
Tell me what about those big city lights
